They instead have to rely on Home Office support which is provided at a level less than the minimum the law allows anyone else to live on.
The result has been that around 28,000 families in 2016/17 are not receiving the higher level of CTC that they could be entitled to because of their child’s disability.
In the Autumn Statement on 23 November 2016, the Chancellor announced that HMRC would be making backdated payments for people who could have been getting the higher rate of child element in their tax credit award because they have a disabled child who meets the qualifying conditions.
The most common way to qualify for these higher payments is through receipt of a disability benefit such as disability living allowance or personal independence payment.
If you met the qualifying rules before your date of claim, HMRC will backdate your claim up to 31 days.
If you are claiming child tax credit (CTC) only or CTC and working tax credit (WTC), this should happen automatically.Once HMRC has amended an award, HMRC will send the claimant a standard revised decision notice and also a separate letter explaining what they have done and why.
